Contaminated Soil Remediation via Composting

Many former industrial sites are contaminated with heavy metal, organic chemicals, and oil pollutants. In addition, urban soils often contain elevated lead levels due to deteriorating lead-based exterior paint. A new compost technology known as "compost bioremediation," has proven to be effective in degrading or altering many types of soil contaminants. The contaminants in soil are digested, metabolized, and transformed into humus and inert byproducts, such as carbon dioxide, water, and salts by a microbial community.

The ultimate goal for any soil remediation project is to return the site to its precontamination condition at a reasonable cost. This often includes revegetation to stabilize the treated soil. In addition to reducing contamination levels, compost provides both soil conditioning and also creates highly fertile soils that promote the growth of a wide variety of plant materials. Furthermore, the costs for compost bioremediation are lower than for other remediation options such as land filling and incineration. Thus composting offers a number of benefits that could be effectively used to help restore urban landscapes. (Excerpted from Michel et al., 2002)
